This quilt explores the intricate connections of oppression faced by black, red and brown peoples as they encounter the police violence and the prison industrial complex. This quilt explores more than just the impact of white supremacy and state violence, but how these histories of oppression have existed between the these groups as well, and must be healed in order for true unity to flourish between red, black and brown peoples.
